Attorney Justine A. Dell encourages and guides clients through the legal processes most appropriate for their individual circumstances.Mediation as a rational approach to divorce or a child-centered child custody arrangement may bring the sensible resolution you seek.
Even if you believe your spouse or the other parent has done wrong, attempting to use the law as a club to punish him or her is not likely to protect your best interests.
The road to a divorce is by nature a high-conflict phase in human relations. Sometimes, peace seems out of reach as a close relationship takes a rapid downward turn. If your spouse or partner has threatened you, you may need a restraining order. Conversely, if you have been named in a restraining order, you may need help regaining access to your home and your children, and salvaging your good name.
